SynchronismIn telecommunication, the term synchronism has the following meanings:
1. The state of being synchronous.
2. For repetitive events with the same, multiple, or submultiple repetition rates, a relationship among the events such that a significant instant of one event bears a fixed time relationship to a corresponding instant in another event.

3. The simultaneous occurrence of two or more events at the same instant on the same coordinated time scale.
